administration had given to blacks, hispanics and young voters during obama's first term. obama, romney argued, had been very generous, quotes around it, to blacks, hispanics and young voters. i once heard a canadian election saying they lost election to people that wanted to stay as part of canada because of ethnic voters. that means not french, not english. this guy, paul ryan who i don't think is right for prime time yet by any means talking about the urban vote. now, they won the other side because they got the most votes. because they won fair and square, which is the first thing ryan said. why do you have to step on his own headline. they won fair and square by saying, oh, it was the black vote. basically, that's what he's saying. >> chris, let me just say, as for romney's comments, i'm still waiting for my gift. i'm waiting for my gift from obama. i haven't received my gift yet. >> where is it? >> maybe it was lost in the mail. >> you may have voted for him without getting that thing in the mail he was supposed to send everybody? >> maybe chris has it. >> i did not get my gift. let me j
-americans, young voters, and hispanics. mr. romney said the president followed the old play book and with regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift, adding free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. as for the hispanic voters, romney said free health care was a big plus. another former opponent of the president, john mccain along with lindsey graham made it clear they would not support susan rice to become the new secretary of state. >> we will do whatever is necessary to block the nomination. >> their chief gripe, they believe she disqualified herself several days after the benghazi attack with her explanation of what happened. >> our current assessment is what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations of our facility in cairo. >> i don't trust her. and the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> a visibly angry pr
voters. romney's words got a lot of attention tonight, including from his own party. with me is republican congresswoman mary bono mack. welcome to you. >> thank you. great to be with you. >> what was your reaction, honestly, to what mitt romney was saying there? >> well, my reaction really for all of the elections around the country is it's really time to sort of evaluate what went right and what went wrong. i think we have to do a complete analysis from race to race. i think there's no doubt that we as republicans need to really focus on making sure we offer to the american people something that they understand, that they believe in, and you know, most importantly, that we can express the point that our children and our grandchildren would be better off tomorrow than they were today. i think that mitt romney's analysis of his campaign was his to do but it's important that all of us do the same thing across the country. >> the problem was it sounded sort of vaguely patronizing, i thought. this was what louisiana governor bobby jindal told wolf blitzer earlier, which kind of
a real problem when the voters think you don't like them. mitt romney was picking up the theme he improvidently put before the country and inadvertently with his 47% video during the xhan. quit dispiesing the american people. >> i always wondered how people became incent experts. didn't the republicans notice the phrase 1% that they were defending? didn't they notice the phrase 47% that was being dismissed? all that time being thrown at them and they're all saying romney is going to win this baby. george will said he was going to win, peggy noonan, karl rove. everyone said he's on a winning campaign strategy. everything is working and now they're all instant, yorn what. st. paul and the road to damascus and that road is really crowded, these converts. your thoughts. >> first of all, there's a personal level to this. the fact is that john of the other republicans ever liked mitt romney and he didn't do anything during the campaign to endear himself to them. don't forget, he attacked them all in the primaries. this is kind of the revenge of the clowns here. he knocked them off one a

fewer voters for romney very mccain, it was 1.3 but a million came from california which wasn't going to have an impact on the race. and obama is down from 2008. does it matter? but it's interesting. >> i thought the fascinating thing about it, sean, was that when you take the states obama carried that were not swing states, his vote share dropped by 2 points, 4 points. on the once that were swing states that he carried it dropped by almost the same, 2 points, 1 point. but 90% of the money was spent in the swing states. and we all, politicians, have to go back to the drawing board because basically, fundamentally the campaigns didn't matter. what mattered were the debates, the storm, the convention, benghazi, the jobs report, the unemployment rate, not those tv ads we all ran. >> there were two things i would improve upon if the republicans want to listen to me. i'm a register conservative. number one, i think it was a mistake not to be more aggressive in the third debate in particular. i don't know who came up with that idea but i said it at the time i thought that was a mistake. and
, suggesting president obama bought key voter support. here's abc's david muir. >> reporter: mitt romney leaving the hotel after the election, next to the convention center, where he hoped to deliver the one speech he had written, his victory speech. but now, in the weeks since the election, abc news has learned mitt romney has been explaining his loss to his closest advisers and top donors. and it started at a breakfast the very next morning. perhaps his most eye-opening explanations yet, during a conference call with a large number of donors. romney argued president obama won in part because of gifts the obama administration has given to particular groups of this country. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition. give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government. and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> reporter: among those groups the gifts went to, romney discusses the african-american community, young people and the hispanic community. here, offering one of the gifts to them. >> what the president did is he
what romney called gifts to minorities and young voters. romney said the president's campaign focused on things like free contraception to get young women to vote for him, and amnesty for children of illegal immigrant to get latinos to the polls. >>> hostess says it could be farewell to twinkies. why the company says striking workers need to return to work today. >> also now that marijuana is legal in two state, what's going to happen to people who drive after smoking it? for the products they make; for them being in the right place at the right time for over 100 years making tillamook cheese from tillamook, oregon; for these farmers never wavering we stand for that. >>> hostess says all of the 17,000 workers might be out of a job strikes workers do not come back. they will file for liquidation if employees are not back to work by 2 this afternoon. they filed for bankruptcy last january, and if the court approves the liquidate request, all plants could be shut down by tuesday. hostess has 17,000 workers across the county. >>> colorado and washington state just legalized pot, but now t
ads and they went with the positive one and here is what romney will do on day one. and i also think those attacks had a kind of voter impact on some of the lower middle class voters, and explains maybe in part ohio why romney didn't get the same number of votes, 2 million votes, 2 1/2 million votes lower than john mccain. >> i think what stands out about obama's victory to me is how ugly it was, this was identity politics on steroids telling black people republicans wanted to take away their right to vote and telling women there's war on them that seniors, that paul ryan wants to push granny off the cliff in a wheelchair. this is not the hope and change obama, this was not, there's no red state and blue state obama. he won ugly, it's divisive and if this is the template for how democrats want to win elections going forward to this-- >> and i can tell you what the reaction in the white house would be if they heard you say that, they would say get over it, grow up, this is politics, republicans got a, you know, put on their boxing gloves and get over it. >> oh, yeah. >> paul: so what?
a clear vision and mitt romney laid out a clear vision, too, and at the convention paul ryan's speech was one of the most ideological acceptance speeches in recent memory. and so it was really up to the voters to decide and they did. >> i will submit there was not much clear about the agenda the president laid out but we can have that discussion as we go forward. >> thank you. i'll tell you there was a clear agenda from glenn beck and rush limbaugh and it wasn't felicitous toward a lot of americans. thank you, michael steele, as always. and david corn. >>> coming up, why general petraeus resigned if he did as it seems the honorable thing by resigning, what's all the continuing buzz about? we have to find out what's going on in the bok ground. >>> also, more than $1 billion was spent on ad this is political season, tv ads. we're going to talk about the one ad, the one ad, that did more to sink mitt romney than all the others and how it got done. this is fascinating. it's a fascinating ad because it really worked. >>> closing down the clown show. at least part of it. if the democrats ha
-validator of mitt romney. he looks like the voter that barack obama needed to change sides, that former reagan democrat, that white working class guy looking dead into the camera and saying, this guy destroyed us. he took away our livelihood and he made us build the stage that we had to stand on to announce the end of our jobs. it was absolutely the most devastating ad, but what was also remarkable was the romney people had no response. look, they had a six-month lead time on this line of attack because remember something called winning our future pac? they ran a 27 minute ad of this same message. romney, because he survived in florida after that, he seemed to think i can get over this because he didn't respond. >> i talked to -- >> jane mayer, you write in your piece that sarah palin of all people thought that the bain ad had a negative impact on mitt romney's candidacy. she thinks it worked. here she is on fox on election night. >> the realization at this point is that those bain capital ads that voters just got inundated with early on in ohio and some of the other areas as it pertained to t

? in particular, health care. romney said "with hwith hispani voters, free health care was a big plus. plus, with regards to young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. there was instant backlash from republicans. >> this is not where the republican party needs to go. look, we want -- if you want voters to like you, the first thing you've got to do is to like them first. and it's certainly not helpful to tell voters that you think their votes were bought. that's not a way to show them that you respect them, you like them. we need to stop talking down to voters. >> maria cardona and amy holmes are back with me now. amy, you heard that there. sour grapes or does mitt romney have a point? >> well, you know, the president did campaign on those issues, but whether or not he won because of them is a separate question. and republicans are supposed to be the party of personal responsibility. so i can understand why governor jindal was none too pleased with mitt romney's assessment. >> and maria,
efforts aimed toward latino voters who supported the president over romney by 71-27%. those folks give you the clear impression that they can reverse that if they would just give away some things of their own. another dubious decision by chicago voters, believe it or not. they have, well, change their mind, and we will talk about top republicans saying the obama administration altered cia intelligence. we will take that up with the "a-team" here next. ♪ lou: well, as i was saying, another dubious decision -- well, not dubious at all. it was idiotic. decision by chicago voters that the recently reelected judge cynthia bram as cook county judge, despite the fact that she suffers from bipolar disorder and a psychiatrist deemed legally insane. you know, that probably isn't that unique situation. she also faces battery charges for allegedly shutting accord deputy. she is now suspended from cases, but still collecting her $182,000 salary. of course, also reelected lots of other folks, despite some of their problems. let's turn now to the "a-team". joining us is the author of what the bleep jus

voter, there are ten angry ones taking action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. >> eliot: one year ago president obama bargained with republicans, offering a so-called grand bargain that cuts spending $10 for every $1 raised in revenue. the question now after the president won a near landslide victory is how to flip those numbers. as is often said, elections have consequences and the grand bargain if there is one must reflect that. the president has already begun to move beyond the beltway to enlist support meeting today with labor leaders from around the country who describe the talks as very, very positive. >> we're very, cre committed to making sure that the middle class and workers don't end up paying the tab for a party that we didn't get to go to and the president is committed to that as well. >> eliot: joining me now with more on the fiscal cliff negotiations
said this. >> governor romney's campaign didn't lay out a specific vision with the american voters. biography and experience isn't enough to win an election. you have to check to the american people. i think this became a contest of personalities and chicago one that. >> boring bob mcdonald refused to share his kool-aide with ben bolshier on something that no one else in the room seemed to know. >> it is because there are too many dam democrats out there. >> the suggestion for what republicans have to do now is to follow in romney's foot steps and all of them need to become missionaries. >> what do we need to do? we need to convert and get more republicans. >> that should be no problem. converting you for example to become ap are. what would it take? >> stop insulting me as an african-american, a woman, stop being insulting. tone is a big problem for the party. david has made a hot of these points. long ago the party out sourced their brain. because they outsourced it away from the thinkers and gave it to the entertainment guys, they said you go ahead and gee fidef conservatis cons
